SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Department of Agriculture is hosting a free seminar next week about treating mountain pine beetles in the Black Hills.

The session will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, at the Hudson Hall in Spearfish. The goal of the seminar is to help landowners understand the various options for finding and treating infested trees.

The seminar will be presented by forest entomologists Kurt Allen of the U.S. Forest Service and John Ball of South Dakota State University and the state Agriculture Department.

Information will be presented on the how, when and why of treating infested trees this fall and winter. The workshop will also address how to identify trees attacked by mountain pine beetle and separate those from ones attacked by other pine beetles.
